We were greeted by Nina the owners wife who showed us around and provided useful information including car parking.
Could not believe as she showed us around how much was provided, eg. coffee, tea, milk, washing powder for the washing machine, Iron and Ironing board. The list went on and on.
The apartment itself is very spacious with a living room containing 3 couches which could be converted to beds if required. Gives an idea of the size of the room that it was not cramped at all, there was also a television, video player including assorted videos and a broadband wireless modem.
Further there is a separate kitchen with all the appliances you could wish for, then a bathroom including the washing machine. Two bedrooms one with a double bed and one with a single.
Even though the apartment is in the middle of the old town close to the major tourist sites it is very quiet. We discovered that not much more than 100 yards away were two all night discos, we never heard a thing!
Dimitris provided us with his and his wife's mobile numbers and told us they were contactable any time if we wanted anything, a nice touch.
One note, if you have any difficulty managing stairs, as it says in the description the apartment is on the second floor and there is no lift. Fine for able bodied people and gives a way of working some off the good food available in the area

Great welcome from the lovely and knowledgeable hosts - Dimitri and Nina. The best thing about this apartment is its position in Rethymno. Although right in the middle of the old town, it is not above busy restaurants so no noise in the evening, (bedrooms are at the back so very quiet anyway). Every thing is in walking distance. Moments from great bars and restaurants. Seconds from the harbour and very close to great shopping. Cute little balcony to watch the world go by. The apartment is spacious and quite simple, but is very comfortable and well appointed with lots of character. The hosts have thought of everything with lots of little personal touches. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
